Smoking in Andorra
Smoking trends in Andorra show a gradual decline in current tobacco smoking in the general population from 36% in 2000 to 30.5% in 2015, with a further decline to 28% projected by 2025. The prevalence for men was 43% in 2000, decreasing to 36% in 2015 with a projection to decrease further to 33% by 2025. For women prevalence was 28% in 2000, decreasing to 25% in 2015, and is projected to decrease further to 23% by 2025. The WHO published prevalence trend estimates in tobacco smoking, as shown here, in their 2018 2nd edition report, which show slightly different smoking prevalence to the WHO country profiles. Data for the estimates are not age standardised, and were obtained from WHO databases. The trend lines are projections, not predictions, of future attainment. A projection indicates a likely endpoint if the country maintains its tobacco control efforts at the same level that it has implemented them to date. Therefore the impact of recent interventions could alter the expected endpoint shown in the projection. While the methods of estimation used in the first and second editions of the WHO report are the same, the volume of data available for the second edition is larger i.e. 200 more national surveys. The results presented are therefore more robust.
